Wycliffe Gordon and the International All Stars

October 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$50

Jazz trombonist Wycliffe Gordon is “one of those performers who instantly connect with an audience” (JazzTimes). A former veteran member of the Wynton Marsalis Septet and Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, the Statesboro, Georgia native tours the world performing hardswinging, straight-ahead jazz, acclaimed by audiences and critics alike.

Gordon’s “signature virtuosity” is “throwing off fast-flying phrases, novel sonic effects and great flurries of notes with apparent ease” (Chicago Tribune). “Like a great vocalist, Gordon unspools gloriously inventive lines” (Los Angeles Times).

A leading headliner, composer, arranger, educator, and recording artist, “Gordon combines his varied stylistic influences with a prodigious technique. One gets the feeling that there is nothing he can’t do on the instrument – from blazingly fast, meticulously articulated bebop lines to sweet-toned ballads, gospel shouts to evocative plunger and multi-phonic statements that run the gamut of human expression” (JazzTimes).
